Engineering and equipment development company TECO 2030 has unveiled the TECO 2030 Engine Performance Optimization System (EPOS), powered by AVL.
The EPOS for combustion engines will be offered to shipowners worldwide. According to TECO 2030, the system provides owners with preventive engine damage measures and reduces fuel consumption and environmental impact by approximately 3%.
For a vessel which consumes 25,000 tonnes of fuel, Norwegian TECO 2030 claims the technology will be able to reduce emissions of approximately 2,000 tonnes of CO2, 50 tonnes of NOx, and 6 tonnes of PM per year.
The EPOS, which can act online onboard a vessel as well as offline in the fleet management’s office, is said to provide condition monitoring and automatic diagnosis using expert algorithms for large-bore combustion engines and their auxiliaries. According to TECO 2030, there is no impact on engine control.
‘Expanding our portfolio to meet the environmental challenges in shipping is a constant goal of TECO 2030. Adding the TECO 2030 EPOS system to our portfolio will contribute to our portfolio of environmental solutions for our clients,’ said Tore Enger, CEO of TECO 2030.
‘The TECO 2030 EPOS system will give us an additional continuous revenue flow during the development of TECO 2030 Marine Fuel Cells and TECO 2030 Future Funnel.’
TECO 2030 and Austrian AVL have collaborated on several projects in recent months. In September, the companies signed a partnership agreement to develop the TECO Marine Fuel Cell, which will be designed for ‘heavy duty’ marine applications.
In December, the company launched the Future Funnel marine emissions reduction system, also developed in conjunction with AVL.
